Homecut - I Don't Even Know feat. Corinne Bailey Rae & Soweto Kinch



Homecut I Dont Even Know
Homecut - I Don't Even Know feat. Corinne Bailey Rae & Soweto Kinch
(Limited Edition 7" / Download) First Word Records FW26, 2009-05-11

The new single from Homecut features double Grammy winner Corinne Bailey Rae and Mercury Music Prize Nominee (and British Jazz hero) Soweto Kinch. Over a soulful piano hook and a snapping off-kilter drumbeat, Testament, Corinne & Soweto have crafted a song that touches on the melancholic and the joyful. With compelling lyrics and outstanding vocals from three of the UKs finest voices, I Don't Even Know is one of 2009's essential tracks. This is backed by Not Far To Go, an uptempo slice of summer - Disco meeting Hip Hop to create an instant dancefloor classic. Both tracks feature on the debut album No Freedom Without Sacrifice on First Word Records.

Press Release :
"He is a party starter and a pioneer. This is a great unconventional record with a broad scope - would hate to miss out on anything he is doing." - Corinne Bailey Rae

The new single from Homecut features double Grammy winner Corinne Bailey Rae and Mercury Music Prize Nominee (and British Jazz hero) Soweto Kinch.

Over a soulful piano hook and a snapping off-kilter drumbeat,Testament, Corinne & Soweto have crafted a song that touches on the melancholic and the joyful. With compelling lyrics and outstanding vocals from three of the UKs finest voices, I Don't Even Know is one of 2009's essential tracks.

This is backed by Not Far To Go, an uptempo slice of summer - Disco meeting Hip Hop to create an instant dancefloor classic. Both tracks feature on the debut album 'No Freedom Without Sacrifice' on First Word Records.

Homecut is the creative alter-ego of Testament, an emcee, musician and producer who has been a key part of the British / Northern music scene for the last 10 years. You may have seen him hosting two of the UK's biggest nights: New Bohemia and The Tuesday Club. Or maybe it's from his role in Shlomo's Vocal Orchestra, or perhaps you saw him beatboxing with Ray Parker Junior on TV. Or meeting Desmond Tutu. Or fronting the kidKANEVIL live show. Or performing live with some of the UK's finest – Jehst, Steve Brown (Cinematic Orchestra), Quantic, The Haggis Horns, Mark Ronson, Andreya Triana, Jarvis Cocker and Klashnekoff (to name but a few).

If you haven't come across Homecut yet, take a listen to the tracks and get to know a man who's as equally influenced by Kurt Vonnegut and LS Lowry as he is by Public Enemy. With debut album ‘No Freedom Without Sacrifice' out in May this is set to be Homecut's year.

The album features a host of incredible guests including J-Live (Rawkus / BBE), Andreya Triana (Flying Lotus / Bonobo), John Ellis (Cinematic Orchestra), kidKANEVIL (Stateless) and Ty (Mercury Music Prize Nominee). Check it out.
